Once established these 5 perennials will play an important role in attracting, feeding and providing habitat for native bees for years to come.
It is important for the environment that we plant a diverse range of flowering perennials native and naturalized to support our threatened pollinating population. Remember there are hundreds of bee species that do not sting (unless threatened) and many of them are also essential pollinators, but do not make honey, the honey bee is not native to North America and threatens our solitary bee population.

Cold Stratification or Direct Sowing: Recommended. (See Winter Jug Method )
Direct sow seeds in fall and allow seeds to naturally cold stratify. When starting seeds indoors, sow finely and barely cover seeds with soil. I recommend sowing these seeds, direct in Fall on a prepared seedbed or garden container, water well, and protect from winter weather with a fabric fleece if some seeds germinate early. Also known as cold stratification and can be completed anytime of the year by placing seed packs in a cool drawer of a refrigerator for 4-12 weeks to break seed dormancy.
1) Sow direct in a prepared weed-free seedbed
2) Cold frame sheltered location in small pots outdoors
3) Under lights indoor grow room
4) Bright windowsill with drip tray and propagator cover
I like to grow in pots this way you can break dormancy, simply by moving the pots around and most seeds germinate in batches, care must be taken when picking out to avoid disturbing emerging seedlings.
Pot young plants on until large enough to plant out, this native plant mix prefers poor soil in full sun.

Native plants maintain balance and provide habitat and eco-systems for resident and migratory wildlife. Due to many years of ecological destruction, development and toxic pollution many native wild flowers, and wildlife are under-threat of extinction.
We all have an important role to play, no matter how small your garden or balcony a few plant pots filled with natives instead of alien ornamentals of genetic hybrids that offer very little to no benefit to feeding insects and birds.
Time to make a small difference on a global scale and encourage our neighbors friends and families to sow a patchwork quilt of native wildflowers like a blanket to protect our sacred planet!
